Chedburgh artist Alan Noyes to have work showcased in Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours 208th Exhibition at London's Mall Galleries
Works by a Chedburgh artist have been selected to appear at the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours 208th Exhibition next month.
Alan Noyes, a retired architect who now paints at his home studio, will have his paintings showcased in the exhibition for the second time after also being selected in 2016.
His work will feature alongside some of the UK's leading watercolour painters.
The exhibition will run from April 2 to 17 at The Mall Galleries in London, where one of Alan’s paintings ‘Hat Stack’ is currently on show.
Alan is a member of the Society of East Anglian Watercolourists and the Cambridge Drawing Society.
He has also had his work on show at the Dockyard Gallery in Bermuda, where he held the position of artist in residence with The Bermuda Masterworks Foundation.
He paints a variety of subjects, predominantly in watercolour, using a very wet-in-wet technique and enjoys pursuing detail in an overall loose style.
Alan also carries out commissions and runs art classes and workshops.
The Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours 208th show is the largest exhibition of its kind in the world, showcasing over 400 of the very best in contemporary water-based paintings from its members and selected artists from around the globe.
Clare O’Brien, chief executive of the Federation of British Artists at Mall Galleries, says: “The variety is astonishing, from photo-realism through impressionism to abstraction, the paint applied with a light and delicate touch or a thick and heavy impasto application that one doesn’t expect from watercolour.
"Subjects range from the landscapes of gently rolling hills one expects to see depicted by watercolourists, through architecture and city scenes, still life works, abstract celebrations of colour, to meditations on the climate crisis.
" This exhibition is an annual survey of how contemporary artists are using this age-old medium and a great place to pick up vibrant, original works with prices starting from £350.”
